京都大学ケナン・リファーイー・スーフィズム研究センターは、著書Sufism: A Global Historyで高名なNile Green先生をアメリカ・カルフォルニア大学ロサンゼルス校よりお迎えし、下記のとおり講演会を開催いたしました。

・ 日時:2018年12月6日(木)15時~17時

・ 発表者:Nile Green (カルフォルニア大学ロサンゼルス校)

・ タイトル:“From Sufi Establishment to Salafi Reform: Reflections on Writing a History of Sufism”

・ 場所:京都大学吉田キャンパス本部構内総合研究2号館4階第一講義室(AA401)

・発表要旨:Over the past century, the humanistic appeal of the mystical poetry and theosophical teachings of the Sufis has won them many admirers outside the dar al-islam. Yet in the same period, Sufi Islam has increasingly been rejected by Salafis and other Muslim reformists. These developments are easier to understand when we take a historical approach that takes account of the social, political and ethnographic dimensions of Sufi Islam, including the rise of Sufis to the position of a ‘religious establishment.’ Ranging from India to the Middle East, this illustrated lecture outlines basic conceptual principles that help us to understand the socio-political functions of the Sufis that contributed to their ascendancy no less than their loss of power.
